Triple H, real name Paul Levesque, has been with the company since 1995 and will go down as one of their greatest ever superstars.
But the 51-year-old's last match came against Randy Orton last year and he has admitted it could be his last if "the right opportunity" doesn't come up.
When asked about the chances an in-ring return right now, the 14-time world champion told The Bill Simmons Podcast: "Right now, zero. I just feel like there's a moment where you go, 'I'm retired', but you're not.
"I'd rather just not say it and if the right opportunity comes up that everybody believes is right, and I believe I can do it without it falling apart, me or the match, then okay, I would consider it.
"I am not at a point where I would say, 'Absolutely not, under any circumstances, but probably not that far off.'
"The thing for me that's good is I'm so transitioned over and satisfied with the other aspects of my career and my life and everything else, I get as much fun and excitement out of watching others do it and succeed at it."
Since stepping away from full-time activity in 2010, 'The Game' has transitioned to a backstage role.
He serves as Executive Vice President of Global Talent Strategy & Development as well as Executive producer of the promotion's third brand, NXT.
